act.: Startups are an act of desperation: One of the reasons you rarely see a MAMAA (Meta, Alphabet, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon) VP or above start a company is the lack of desperation. They have already “made it” career wise and financially, and there is less of a need to take risk. Indeed, there is enormous opportunity cost to starting a company, as well as stress, lack of leverage, and pain. It is irrational for VPs at big tech to startup a company. Why start a company when you have a large salary, lower risk job, high societal status, and the perception of impact? Why start a company when not desperate? It is irrational to do so.
